The ILOVEYOU Virus, also known as, the Love Bug, is a computer worm that infected over 10 million Windows computers in May of 2000. The virus was an email that went out to users with the subject line “ILOVEYOU” and the attachment “Love Letter For You.txt.vbs”. This resulted in users thinking this was a normal and safe file to open, they however, they were sadly mistaken. When opened, the file would run a script that that damages the local system it was running on and spread to other users by sending itself to the user’s contacts within their devices.
